Kudlow, a former CNBC anchor who was most recently a senior economic adviser to President Trump, will host a new weekday show on Fox Business Network

Larry Kudlow, the banker turned CNBC anchor turned Trump economic adviser, will return to television, this time for Fox News Media.

Kudlow will host a new weekday program on Fox Business Network and will provide financial analysis across the media company's platforms. Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott announced the hire Tuesday. Kudlow is the first high-profile Trump administration official to score a television deal since Trump's term ended earlier this month.

Kudlow joined the Trump administration in 2018 as assistant to the president for economic policy and director of the National Economic Council. He had been a regular on CNBC since its launch in 1989, including hosting programs like The Kudlow Report.

Fox Business has had ratings success against CNBC over the past year, though much of that has come from shows like Lou Dobbs Tonight, which skew toward conservative political commentary rather than financial programming. Details of Kudlow's new FBN show will be released at a later date.

Earlier on Tuesday, a financial disclosure form released by former Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany suggested that she would be joining Fox News in an undefined role. A source familiar with the matter confirmed that they had discussions with McEnany but paused them before making a final decision, adding "We are open to hiring her in the future given we do not condone cancel culture."
